    This is a good, solid course (the site of the LPGA's 2008 Kapalua event) and features a couple challenging and fun holes. There is an especially good stretch on the front nine where a short par 4 and a long par 3 along the water provide some exciting challenges, especially when the wind is blowing (which is usually is!). The Plantation course, which hosts the SBS PGA Tour event, is a better experience overall (more spectacular views and a higher ratio of good to average holes) but this course is nice too. The Kapalua resort is wonderful, with a great Ritz hotel, excellent restaurants on site, and top-notch practice facilities. The customer service at Kapalua is always excellent.
